I wanted to share with you guys some of my essentials that I need to bring when I head out on a mini weekend getaway. When I’m packing for a overnight or two day trip, its really easy for me to forget things when I know I’ll be back home quickly. So I’ve streamlined my quick list of must have items so I never forget to pack them and am prepared. Let’s jump right in!
The perfect pair of boots
Many times on trips I’ll pack impractical shoes and be frustrated when my feet start hurting. So I make sure to pack a pair of shoes that I can walk around all day in and these booties have been my go-to recently. I love the vintage natural leather look!
Shampoo and Conditioner
I’ve been doing weekly or twice weekly coconut oil masks on my hair to hydrate my ends from color treatment, but the thought of bringing along a jar of coconut oil and doing a mask on my hair isn’t practical for a weekend trip. When I want to keep my coconut oil benefits up, I bring along Suave Coconut Oil Infusion shampoo and conditioner. I’m addicted to all things coconut so I’m not surprised! Having a shampoo and conditioner infused with coconut oil also helps keep my hair healthy against the elements (the salty ocean air from last weekend’s trip to Jenner, CA and the dry desert at next weekend’s Coachella trip! I picked these up during a weekly Safeway grocery trip and I love the price too! My hair has been so shiny from it!
A jacket that goes with everything
When I’m going for a quick trip I like to minimize the amount of stuff I need to lug along, so I find one perfect jacket that can serve all purposes and go with all outfits. This denim moto jacket is a conversation starter–everyone has asked about it!–and can be dressed up or down for daily excursions or dinner at night.
Portable battery pack
This is a no-brainer for someone who is on their phone 24/7 but I’ve forgotten it before! When I’m traveling I’m using my phone for photos, videos, social media, etc to capture the moment so I need to make sure I have a backup battery in my purse so I don’t miss a moment because of 3% battery.
We love taking weekend trips to explore but the hardest part is leaving behind our little pups Lola and Penny! I feel like every time I pull out my suitcase or duffle bag, they know we are headed somewhere and give us those puppy-dog eyes. One thing on my list this summer is to find more dog friendly hotels and destinations to add to our list–until then Grandma and Grandpa’s house!
